Default Cruise Moab 2011 pre-run

I didn't take a lot of pics this weekend as I had Bridger with me. He did great at 17 months and his first time camping.

Few of Cliff Hanger. We had a break shortly after the creek crossing. I followed the broken truck out after a clever trail repair.

Myself, Farnham, & myself again.

A few of Bridger for good measure.

His new sleeping while wheeling technique. First s'mores. Sleeping in the tent. Pancakes for breakfast.

OK, happened somewhere on Cliff Hanger. I did not get out to check after every bump to determine where.

Bent passenger side rear lower control arm.

I hope everyone made it home safe. I don't have many pictures, but I have plenty of good memories. Scott and Steve worked their magic on the night run in BFE. Seeing amazing trails, amazing rigs, and amazing drivers on that night run; was truly impressed.

I have some clicking in my birfs as I'm turning, so the saga of my front axle continues. Longfields - might just do the trick. I have to put the gears in up front anyway might as well throw some more money at the thing.

I hope everyone had plenty to eat this morning. I want to thank everyone that came out and those that tried to make it out. Cruise Moab is a big event and requires help from everyone - no matter ability level - to make it a success.

Default home safe. short note of thanks.

thanks to everyone for making the 2011 pre-run one for the record books! We covered a ton of ground and a ton of topics.
